When I need a speedy skillet supper, this pepper steak comes to my rescue. The tender meat is slightly sweet, with a hint of brown sugar and molasses. —Monica Williams, Burleson, Texas

    That is the worst thing I've ever seen with all the peppers on top, which I absolutely hate. Who are you feeding this to? I love stir fry and this doesn't come close with all the many ingredients. Why is there all that lemon juice? /
